Employee engagement can be thought of not only as how someone feels about what they are doing and their overall work experience, but also as the emotional commitment he or she has. This means they don’t just work for a paycheck or the next promotion, but work on behalf of the organization’s goals. When employees care – when they are engaged – they use discretionary effort and go that “extra mile.” You’ll find the “engaged” programmer working overtime when needed, without being asked.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is an oft-mentioned topic amongst companies big and small, and with its pervasive nature comes a lot of opportunity. For the 35 years of Strategic America’s existence, CSR has played a large role in the company culture, forming the foundation for who we are today. When the agency was founded, CSR was an integral piece to its growth plan and is deeply engrained in the day-to-day business at the agency.
